Sandy Smet, USDA
We need to be more organic in your gardening. This was the main theme of our speaker Sandy Smet. We need to plant Bee Bomb Plants, Sun Flowers, Petunias, Dogwood and Snap Dragons. Sandy says that we need to leave the dandelions in for the bees. The bee hives have a major enemy in the Varroa Mite. We need the bees for their pollination of trees, fruits and flowers.

Sandy Smet – Badger Girl’s State
The American Legion Auxiliary sponsored nine girls to Oshkosh for a week for Badger Girl’s State. They get donations from most of service clubs including $250 from us. The girls learn leadership skills and how the government system works. They stay in the dorms at Oshkosh and are organized into different cities by their floor.
